The main goal of the New York-based hardware startup littleBits is to inspire people, young and old, to play around and create their own inventions with the company's line of electronic building blocks. If littleBits' new Gizmos & Gadgets Kit doesn't make you want to start tinkering, I don't know what will.
Though all of littleBits' products seem to be targeted toward kids, the new Gizmos & Gadgets Kit is especially so, featuring all of the materials and instructions to build 12 colorful, "tech-infused devices," many of which are souped-up toys. The kit comes with 15 different BITS, which are building blocks like a wireless transmitter, DC motor and battery and cable that you need to get your inventions up and running, as well as materials like stickers and wheels to provide the finishing touches to your creations, such as an Iron Man-worthy Megablaster, a Bitbot rover and a Bumperball game.
Of course, users can also use the materials provided in the Gizmos & Gadgets Kit to forget about the instruction manual and experiment on their own. They can also use the new free littleBits iOS app to get inspiration for future projects and share their inventions with the world.
The littleBits Gizmos & Gadgets Kit is available now and retails for $199.95.
